The purpose for the temples is to invite people to come and hear the Bhagavatam and to chant Hare Krishna and to see the Lord being worshipped. All the ceremonies are accompanied by the chanting of the Holy names. Every day we have morning and evening classes for the people. In this way the people are engaged in devotional service in so many different ways.
